Add these foods to your healthy eating plan, and you’ll improve your heart health and lose weight at the same time!

The first step – eliminate

The first step towards better heart health (and dieting in general) is to eliminate as many processed foods from your kitchen as possible.

This means that you should be eating about 90% whole unprocessed foods – MOSTLY fruits, veggies, whole grains and legumes, nuts and seeds; some eggs, dairy, meat and fish (if you eat animal products); and occasional home-made or artisanal (for lack of a better word) wholegrain baked goods.

These are the food items that occur most readily in nature, and they’re the ones that haven’t been totally messed with for the sake of maximising profit. So you’re actually getting what it looks like you’re getting when you eat fresh foods.
